Rooney is England’s all-time record goal scorer

Last evening, Rooney scored his 50th goal for England from the penalty spot in the Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland. With this goal, the English captain has become England’s all-time record goalscorer, breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s 1970 record of 49 goals.

I am feeling a little bit blunt. Had it not been for the group that England was given, I don’t think Rooney would have been England’s top goal scorer just yet. This is Group E:

England 25 pts

Switzerland 15 pts

Slovenia 12 pts

Estonia 10 pts

Lithuania 9 pts

San Marino 1 pt

San Marino is no competition for anyone. They need major resources to develop their football. I hope to see that one day. With all due respect, had England been in a tougher group, they wouldn’t have been this enthusiastic, but congrats Rooney. I know there’s plenty more of that where it came from.
